CostumeCon 36

May 11th-14th 2018

San Diego, CA 92108

Costume-Con is an international convention that has been devoted to costuming of all kinds since 1983. All skill levels, from beginners to masters, and all types of costumers are welcome, including cosplayers, historical reenactors, doll dressmakers, science fiction enthusiasts, fantasy fans, and more. The theme will be “Ports of Call” and you can interpret that as broadly as you like. Maybe you’re captain of a dirigible tethered in town. Or perhaps you work on an intergalactic cruiser currently in orbit. Maybe the year is 1942 and you’re shipping out to the South Pacific.
